Raise the Taxes . . . It's Our Only Option

Fox News' Neil Cavuto explains this perfectly . .
. (check out his website before you make too
quick of judgment on this post) -

http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,344631,00.html

Here's his whole write-up:

I was wrong.

Plain and simple, I was wrong.

What I thought would be a mild recession has
turned into something worse — maybe much worse.

I didn't think the government should get
involved. Now, I think it has no choice.

If the markets can't correct things, maybe Uncle
Sam can.

And maybe, just maybe, politicians demanding a
greater government role are right.

But that government role doesn't come cheap.

They know this.

Belatedly, I know this too. So, let me be clear:
We need to raise taxes.

You heard me right — raise taxes.

Not across the board and hopefully not
permanently.

But enough to right some wrongs and pay some long
overdue bills.

The rich have had a nice ride. Paying a little
more for the pleasure won't kill them and it
won't kill me.

We've tried desperately to bring the poor up.
Maybe it's time to teach the well-to-do a thing
or two and bring them down.

They won't miss the money. But maybe they'll get
the point.

Yes, it's time to raise taxes and the sooner the
better.

Because, yes, I was wrong: Cutting taxes isn't
the answer. Hiking them, now, more than ever is.

Mark it down. This date: April 1st, 2008.

April Fools Day.

Gotcha!

LOL - he caught me! I was shocked that Cavuto was saying such blasphemy :).

Thanks for sharing that Matt.
